(Victor Valley)–Girls and boys all over the world make and enjoy dolls. On Saturday, July 30, 2011 from 1 to 4 pm, the San Bernardino County Museum’s Education Division will host a Family Fun Day, “Dolls for Everyone.” Designed for families with children ages 5 and above, participants will make three kinds of dolls. There is a $1 materials fee for the program in addition to regular museum admission fees.
“We will make dolls using styles and materials shared from other cultural practices—American Indian, Mexico, and American overland pioneers,” said Curator of Education Jolene Redvale. “Families will make some dolls to keep and others to share.”
The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 am to 5pm. General admission is $8 (adult), $6 (military or senior), $5 (student), and $4 (child aged 5 to 12). Children under five and Museum Association members are admitted free. Parking is free.
